A new family-owned dry cleaners and alteration store recently open on Livingston Avenue and they want your business.

Estelle Lee was working behind A Cleaner City on Thursday afternoon, which is located at 250 S. Livingston Ave. Lee co-owns the dry cleaner and alteration business with her parents Tom and Mia.

While the business opened two months ago, it is hard not to see on the local thoroughfare. A “Grand Opening” sign and multi-colored flags can be seen still hanging from the single-story building.

Livingston Patch stopped into A Cleaner City and spoke with Lee on Thursday. The following are excerpts from that conversation. 

Why did you want to open a family business here in downtown Livingston? 

Lee: It’s a good market here. There is a large population and a high demand.

Is this your first time opening a small business?

Lee: No. My parents have another dry cleaning business in New York, and have more than 30 years of experience of tailoring and dry cleaning. 

How has business been so far?

Lee: It’s been good. Most people just don’t know that we are here yet.

A Cleaner City is much larger than your typical dry cleaners. What do you offer with such a large store?

Lee: Everything is done on-site: Dry cleaning, laundering shirts, alterations, tailoring. We don’t send anything out except rugs and leather, among a few other things.

While some other places send out their shirts and tailoring, we have a faster turnover rate because everything is done here. We can have things dry cleaned the same day or alterations finished for the next day.
